Lady Gaga's new video "Applause" premiered today, and successfully kicked up a whole lot of internet dust. She writhes, she grimmaces into the camera, she dons face paint, and she sports a tremendous glove-bra. The song is stuck-in-your-head material and the video actually makes the dance-pop song significantly more interesting. While the video will definitely be a contender at the 2014 VMAs, Gaga released the video right in time for her 2013 VMA performance.
The Sunday night event will open with a world premiere performance of "Applause."
